Join us for an exciting new program at the zoo with Redhouse Arts Center and Open Hand Puppet Theater. Throughout this 6-week program, kids ages 10-15 years will learn various theatrical skills, such as: improv, teamwork, design, stage presence and basic puppetry. Using the different exhibits at the zoo and the animals for inspiration, participants will also work as a group to write, design and perform an original show in the outdoor amphitheater on the last day of the program. Class is taught by Caitlin Friedberg in conjunction with zoo education staff. No prior knowledge or experience is required, just an interest in playing with, exploring and learning new skills while being a little silly in the process.

6 week session on Sundays January 9, 16, 23, 30, February 6, 13

11 a.m. - 3 p.m.
